JaBier (5286) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Pint at World of Beer Easton on 1/10/13. Darkest brown pour with a medium tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate and roast. Malty flavor with dark chocolate character before a bitter, roasty finish. Straightforward, but nice.

ARH (772) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2015
On tap, poured into a shaker. The beer is a dark, nearly opaque cola color with a soft foam, off-white head with a moderate retention, and only a touch of lace. The aroma is roasted grains and chocolate with a light licorice note in the background. The taste is a medium sweetness with a medium-light bitterness. The beer is syrupy with a creamy fizz carbonation and a medium full body flavored with lots of chocolate and roasted grain that finishes with a clean licorice spiciness and some light notes of dark fruits. The aftertaste is a licorice cleanliness with coffee and bread notes.

Bottle to glass, large rocky light brown head that diminished slowly,not much lacing,tawny cola color.A light malt aroma with a burnt note.This porter is rather light in body, thin and slick.The moderate sweet flavor with bitter finish was short lived. Really not much of a porter.

Botella. Color negro opaco. Espuma beige jabonosa. Baja formación y retención media. Aromas a chocolate, licor, avena, cafe, algún fruto rojo maduro....en boca cremosa fina y carbonatacion bastante viva... los mismos matices aunque el chocolate se hace mas presente, helado de chocolate, barquillo, los dulces dominan...final en el mismo rollo bastante suave, aunque mas a café.en mi opinion según la bebes va a menos...

tectactoe (3072) - Michigan, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Bottle: Dark brown body with a foamy khaki head that fades very quickly to a measly collar. Aroma has notes of semisweet chocolate, molasses, & roasted malt. Very light undercurrent of prune, steak sauce, & faint soy. Not bad, but different. Flavor is decisively more roasty with a strong malt body. Faint charcoal, bitter cocoa dust, mild anise, & a hint of coffee bean. Slight coffee bean, & some prune skin towards the finish that adds a light acrid hint of astringency. Thin-medium mouth feel. Decent.

ContemplateBeer (1676) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Aroma: Espresso notes, raisins, dark cacao. Appearance: Almost oily black with a foamy tan head that settles into a skin. Flavor: Roast-centric, not a whole lot of chocolate; some citrusy notes buried underneath (something akin to Centennial); espresso finish. Palate: Full bodied, creamy texture, flat carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: A satisfying enough porter; fairly pleasing on all levels.

Poured from a bottle. A very good abv content. Creamy, tangy, coffee aroma that continues to the tongue. Great dark brown color.

I expected Dark Horse to make a fine porter and they didn’t disappoint. Label has a very thirsty trout indeed on it - it’s a skeleton. Aroma is sweet, funky, and complex. The taste is equally impressive, smoky and spicy, but well balanced too. Really good.
